Hundreds of images — of
Jewish communities living
and dying in what was once
the heartland of world
Jewish scholarship and cul-
ture — crowd into Larry
Jackier'seind when he re-
calls a recent "mission of
light" to Romania and Hun-
gary.
Jackier, national chair-
man of the United Jewish
Appeal Young Leadership
Cabinet, was joined by 12
other YLC leaders, includ-
ing fellow Detroiters Stan-
ley Frankel, former chair-
man, and Joel Gershenson.
For Jackier and Frankel, it
was their second trip to
Romania.
From the start of the mis-
sion, when they joined
Romania's Chief Rabbi
Moses Rosen on his annual
Hanuka "marathon" to 32
communities, the young
Americans were struck by
the irony and pathos of
Jewish life in Eastern
Europe.
The special nature of
their trip was pointed up
in the fact that the 13 YLC
leaders were the first
such group to visit the
organized Jewish com-
munity of Hungary since
the Joint Distribution
Committee began operat-
ing openly there last year
after an absence of 25
years.
The Americans were sad-
dened to observe the
gradual demise of Roma-
nian Jewry despite valiant
attempts to maintain
Jewish life.
"If there were children in
the town," said Jackier,
"they would sing, light the
Hanuka candles and receive
gifts. Everyone who could
walk would be there, wait-
ing for our — for Rabbi Ro-
sen's — arrival. The haunt-
ing faces and images in cold,
unheated synagogues . . . I
will never forget them."
At one kosher canteen, in
Botosani, the Detroiters
learned that it is, indeed, a
small world. "A man in his
early 60s sitting next to me
asked, in halting English,
where I was from. When I
sadi Detroit, his face lit up.
He turned out to be a first
cousin of Max Shaye,"
former Allied Jewish Cam-
paign general chairman.
Hungary was "totally
different," said Jackier. In
Budapest, where some 80
percent of Hungary's
100,000 Jews live, there is
no Rabbi Rosen to smooth

denced by the welcome re-
turn of the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee and its
funding of kosher restau-
